Who can use this Letter of Intent?
Anyone who is negotiating a contract with a contractor and wants to get some work started before the contract is finalised.
What is a Letter of Intent (LoI) for?
The purpose of a letter of intent, usually, is to confirm to a successful tenderer that the contract will be awarded and to get the contractor to start some work up to a specified value before the formal contract is signed A LoI is not a substitute for a formal agreement but is for use as an interim measure conditional on the formal agreement being signed.
What are the main points for a letter of intent?
Formal contract Identify the contract being negotiated and the key terms. Sometimes the remaining issues are identified.
Interim work Identify the work to be performed under the LoI
Price include a maximum price for the LoI work
Conditions Make it clear the full contract award is conditional on that contract being signed by a certain date, otherwise the client can walk away.
